Undergraduate Minor in Oceanography
Environmental Programs in Geosciences
Master of Science in Oceanography
The Master of Science program is designed to synthesize information about ocean systems from course work and readings and apply it to a limited research project. The project becomes the topic for each student's master's thesis. This program prepares graduates for jobs in education, private and government research laboratories, and ocean-oriented businesses such as environmental remediation.
Doctor of Philosophy in Oceanography
In the Ph.D. program students develop a more thorough understanding of oceanography through advanced course work and independent investigation, culminating in a doctoral dissertation. Working closely with an advisory committee, each student learns to conduct original research and communicate the results to colleagues and the community. Students are encouraged to publish articles in academic journals and give presentations at professional meetings.
Master of Geosciece (M.Gsc.)
The non-thesis Master of Geosciences (M.Gsc.) is designed for students who want a broad background in the Geosciences at the graduate level. It is intended to provide a science content degree for science teachers in the public schools and community colleges. It can also provide an environmental geoscience background for those in positions having a concern for environmental restorations.
Ocean Observing Systems Certificate
The Certificate in Ocean Observing Systems is open to all students with an is to train a new generation of ocean professionals knowledgeable in the development, design, and implementation of real-time operational oceanographic systems.
